    Broad City still delivers all the joyous she-rah inspiration and whip-smart social commentary that helped make it a sensation more than five years ago.

    As it enters its fifth and final season, and as its target audience moves into their early 30s, it feels like the right time to say goodbye to our heroines. Season five begins with an instant-classic episode following Abbi and Ilana through a sprightly series of short Instagram video "stories" documenting Abbi's 30th birthday celebration.

    The [premiere] episode, an ingenious love letter to friendship and the city in the form of an Instagram Story. ... At the beginning of the final season, time seems to be weighing on the series’s mind. But to its credit, it seems to resist the standard conclusion of young-people-in-the-city sitcoms: that characters must “grow up,” which means getting a steady job, kids and a mortgage.

    Broad City is still enjoyable and it’s still heartening to watch an entire series devoted to female friendship. But it no longer feels like something new or surprising in the way it did for the first three seasons. You’ll still laugh a fair amount when you watch Abbi and Ilana’s swan song. But when it’s over, you’ll also feel ready to say good-bye.

    This was a pretty good episode that started with the novel concept of telling it's whole story through an instagram story.

This paves the way for a lot of surreal jokes that they otherwise wouldn't have been able to tell. Expand
